Stolen Esprit in Turkey


Recommended Posts

Lotus Esprit have received word from Istanbul, Turkey of an owner who's Esprit has been stolen. It's likely that the car will be taken out of the country and sold or broken for parts. We would like everyone in the Esprit world to keep an eye out for this car and contact the owner if they are offered it.

Esprit's aren't stolen too often and we can all imagine what this owner is going through. Hopefully with LEW and the Esprit community we can make it almost impossible for stolen Esprits to be sold on. Making them not worth stealing and benefitting everyone. We've contacted the owner and are trying to get some pictures, chassis and engine numbers of the Esprit to help. Below are the details we have so far.

Dear LEW,

I am Writing from Istanbul Turkey. I own a 1998 Lotus Esprit V8 GT with 15,000 km on the clock. The car is champanegne color. It was stolen last week at a gas station. I am told the car might be heading outside the country by the police. If anyone comes across it please let me know. My email is [email protected] .

What distinguishes this car is that it has a hand made central exhaust system. It also has K&N air filter placed in the small cabin behind the driver and the passenger. They are visible air filters on both sides. When driven, inside the car is an enourmous sucking sound. Please let me know if anyone comes across the car, the Turkish Police are looking everywhere for it.

Best wishes to all....

Ahmet Ozgun.

That's gutting.... :lol:

Problem is you could flog a car like that somewhere out east for half its value where no one gives a monkey about stolen vehicles and it'll never be seen again....

I can already see an Iranian Caviar Baron parting with 20,000YTL.. :blink:
